W2SB challenge: "In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb"

The current challenge at Words2ScrapBy is "In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb", a great challenge for the weather we've all had, especially the folks in New England! It was a bit balmy here today in Northern Virginia but they're calling for 4-8 inches of snow tomorrow! So our March is definitely coming in like a lion.

As I browsed through one of my favorite vintage image websites,,  I saw this image from an old children's magazine and thought it would be perfect for the challenge. I added some clouds to the background with a Hero Arts stamp to add to the blustery day feeling.

I just spoke to my brother in Florida; he said it's 85 and sunny there today...not too jealous!

Here's my card:

Thanks for stopping by!
